5 Stars if it weren't for the recording.
The show and performance garner 5 stars, as Moe. put on quite an act. I mean, look at this: Meat>Time Ed, Moth>Kids, and Spine>Punchline> Rec Chemistry. OK so the show has it all. Unfortunately, the source sounds a bit muffled, isn't very loud, and just doesn't sound very crisp. That notwithstanding, I would recommend this show for its stellar setlist and top notch jamming.
Two words about this show. Recreational Chemistry. Real solid show overall but for me the highlight of this show was Recreational Chemistry, out of all the moe. shows i've seen (20 or so), and all the cds i've listened to (tons and tons), this is still by far my favorite Rec Chem ever. Maybe it was because I was there but it was totally off the hook. This source is very nice too, I dont really remember any other superior rigs at the show, maybe 1 pair of schoeps way up in the balcony, but this source is solid.
